below we have webbing across one of the pilot berths (the Cage) kiddo ain't going anwhere.

On deck we'd just put little guy into a PFD and lash his car seat into the cockpit. Now that he's ambulatory, PFD, harness and SHORT tether.

That looks terrific!

Edit: What about using some S-hooks on a lipped hatch cover?

That picture scares the hell out of me. This is a boat that floats on water. You will trust your child to a 1 by 4 and a couple of open end hooks. Sounds like disaster in the making the first time a power boat crosses your path.As someone who has had kids and grandkids in boats since they were 3 months old I say bad design! Good idea to sail with them, but get real.

Well, for the use on the open sea, there are clearly two things missing: closed hooks and a clamped mounting of the wood. The whole thing held my weight, as I jumped up and down on it.

On our lake, there are no real waves and exactly three power boats of the life guards and a sailing school, all with less than 40 hp. So I already got real.

IF you clamp it, and have closed hooks, you are correct..,.you have gotten real. If you think that you only need that at sea...you are not. I am glad that you will take care of the little girl. Good luck with that.

Looks like an interesting design... We will also soon be cruising on a small boat with a newborn.

Thanks for sharing it, even if it did mean that you have to put up with the usual run of nitwits who feel they have the right to come on a forum and accuse people they have never met before of not taking care of their kids

Chall,

For little bitties we came up with a similar design using the Arm's Reach cocoon hammock. Instead of hooks, the mock up had holes in the support and we used carabiner clips. For use below, we had come up with using a padeye on the top of the cabin, the support bar attached to a single point carabiner so we have a gimballed cradle.

Sounds interesting Mimsy.....we are looking at options at the moment. We don't see any reason to stop sailing just cause we will have a little bub....

infant PFD

There are several makers of infant PFDs, such as this one:
Naya Water Gear Baby PFD (Infants') - Mountain Equipment Co-op. Free Shipping Available

Our 8mo old didn't like it at first (2 mo) but now he's 8mo and likes it ok.
